Severe Storm Tips – Regional Flooding preparation
Regional Flooding is occurring more and more often and with greater severity according to NOAA and other organizations. Flooding of this kind often happens with little to no warning and according to FEMA will occur with more frequency in areas previously not known to flood.
What can you do to be better prepared?
Probably the single most important thing a home owner can do is prepare a “ready kit”.
A ready kit should include at least two essential things:
- First, something waterproof with important documents and information such as passport, and phone numbers, insurance info and bank info.
- Second and survival bag with first aid kit, drinking water, hand held radios, flashlight and food rations at a minimum.
Keep these in close proximity to one another and ready at all times. Don’t wait until the storm is on the horizon to be prepared. Evacuation is always the first option, when that is not the option you choose, SERVPRO of Hyde Park / Central Austin says please choose to be prepared.
